Words have power. Words shape how people perceive reality. Words can change the world. Join Summer Springboard’s Creative Writing program and become immersed in the study of four different genres using the Writer’s Workshop methodology. Discover what it takes to be a novelist, a poet, a scriptwriter, and a gonzo journalist.
Do you have a favorite novelist you want to know more about? Do you question who writes the episodes of The Arrow on the CW? Do you want to understand why journalists risk their lives to cover category 5 hurricanes? Do you turn your poems into song lyrics? Through a variety of lessons, writing prompts, guest speakers, field trips, and time to put pen to paper, the course will sharpen writing skills and love of the written word.
